Greetings, I will like you to understand that, this is no spam message. Your attention to this message will change your life. I NEED JUST YOUR CO-OPERATION. I am Benjamin Eagle Owen, Director Allocation department of RHB BANKING GROUP. My office monitors and controls the affairs of all banks and financial institutions concerned with foreign claim payments. I am the final signatory to any transfer or remittance of huge funds moving within banks both on the local and international levels in line with foreign claim settlement. I have before me list of funds which could not be transferred to some nominated accounts as these accounts have been identified either as ghost accounts unclaimed deposits or over-invoiced sum etc. 0n this note I wish to have a deal with you as regards to an unpaid fund. I have a file before me and the data's are correct and un-tampered. As it is my duty to recommend the transfer of these surplus funds to the Federal Government Treasury and Reserve Accounts as unclaimed deposits. I have the opportunity to write you based on the instructions I received two days ago from the Foreign Debts reconciliation department to submit the list of payment reports / expenditures and audited reports of revenues. Among several others I have decided to remit your claim sum following my idea that we can have a deal/agreement and I am going to do this legally. My conditions: 1. The sum of USD$4.7M only will be transfer into your account after the processing of all relevant legal documents with your name as the bonfire beneficiary. The transfer will be made by Draft or telegraphic Transfer T/T confirmable in 3 working days in your location. 2. This deal must be kept secret forever and all correspondence will be strictly by email/ telephone for security purposes. 3. There should be no third parties as most problems associated with your fund release are caused by your agents or representative. If you AGREE with my conditions l advise you to send the following: A: Your Full name and address B: Your direct telephone number C: Sex D: Occupation. And the transfer will commence without delay as I will proceed to fix your name on the Payment schedule instantly to meet the three days mandate. I hope you don't reject this offer and have this fund transferred. My private e-mail is email@example.com Yours Faithfully, Mr. Benjamin Eagle Owen
